Run by a cooperative of 50 Baltimore-area artists, this Fells Point gallery puts on a new exhibition each month, usually of about 150 works made by the co-op members. The works vary in style from traditional to contemporary, and often include paintings in acrylic, oil, and watercolor, prints, photographs and sculptures as well as novelties such as painting on ostrich eggs.
This reliable little Fells Point sushi house has demonstrated impressive consistency and staying power, and we know a few mavens who swear up and down that the sushi here is the best in town. The udon, tempuras, pajun (Korean-style pancakes), and gyoza are all a notch above the norm, too.
Brick Oven Pizza is so proud of its wood-burning stove and old-school baking method that it named itself after it, but you're gonna be all about the almost infinite kinds of pizza you can dream up by combining its 53-plus toppings options. Or just opt for one of its house specialties: go cheesy (the mozzarella, ricotta, provolone, Romano, fontina, and Gorgonzola Lucky 7 White Cheese), go traditional (the mozzarella and fresh basil Margarite Lisa), or just go nutty (the barbecue chicken and shrimp).
Enjoy crab cakes, seafood, and pasta overlooking the Inner Harbor in Fells Point.

A bar submerged in traditional Latino culture is a great place to end your night after dining at any one of Fells Point's Mexican restaurants. Cash only.
The first Salvadoran restaurant along the Broadway strip to openly court a gringo clientele, this white-tablecloth spot is more inviting and finished looking than its ramshackle Spanish Town precursors. The food served is very similar, though--groaning servings of plain, simple, modestly spiced food. The value-priced combination platters are artless concoctions of dense papusas, endless refried beans, yummy tamales, fried plantains, and marinated beef. Seafood selections from the mesquite grill help to raise up the fare. Restaurante El Trovador is the place to take newcomers to try this starchy, satisfying cuisine.
Kali's Court is a posh and expensive Mediterranean seafood restaurant that earns stellar marks with its romantic, candlelit interior and its small boutique menu--only a half-dozen or so entrées, appetizers, and salads. The results are exquisite--an albino anchovy salad with fennel, toasted almonds, and black-truffle vinaigrette; a killer of a bouillabaisse with lobster, green-lip mussels, calamari, and seasonal fish. Kali's Court is particularly loved for its grilled whole fish--they helped put bronzini on Baltimore's culinary map--and the dreamy outdoor garden, for which early reservations are a must.
Kali's Mezze still packs the house for authentic Mediterranean small plates. Looking for fatoush, horta, or pastirma? You'll find it here along with savory cheese pies, moussaka, and a tarama that will make you wish you could lick your plate.
Juicy hand-formed burgers headline the menu at this quintessential Fells Point pub. The burgers are half-price all day and night on Tuesday, when patrons are asked not to endlessly hog up tables. Kooper's sustains a week's worth of similar dining specials (e.g., fajitas and margaritas on Mondays, New York steak on Thursday), and locals appear to have the whole schedule memorized. You'll have a better time if you like a drink or two--everyone else here does. Not quite memorable dining but efficient and reliable, with a terrific Sunday brunch.
Dance and live music venue with a Latin restaurant, tapas bar, salsa dance lessons, and V.I.P. treatment for members.
Leadbetters Tavern focuses on live music with two shows nightly featuring local and regional musicians playing blues, folk, guitar heavy folk, and other roots music. Never a cover.
Liquid Earth is the place for a shot of wheat grass or a fruit-, veggie-, and vitamin-filled beverage. It is also the home of some of the most heavenly meat-free sandwiches ever to grace our cakeholes. The sacred submarine--crunchy Italian bread stacked high with baked tofu, roasted onions, mushrooms, cheese, pickles, and cherry hots--is so large it usually ends up being lunch and dinner. The meatless muffaletta is another favorite. And Liquid Earth's vegan cheese--which can be substituted for the cow variety on any sandwich--is so creamy you won't believe its dairy free. Just don't hit up Liquid Earth if you're in a hurry; this place is too laid back for rush orders.
Takeout and restaurant serving such Central American staples as tamales, papusas, tacos, baleadas and tortas.

The world's friendliest bakery offers up not only a full range of breads and sweets, but also filling focaccias, paninis, etc. for lunch. Serves dinner on weekends during the summer.
When Pierpoint opened in 1989, chef Nancy Longo's little restaurant created quite a local stir. For the first time Maryland food--specifically, Chesapeake cuisine--was being treated not just seriously but reverentially. Seventeen years later the crowds might have thinned, but Pierpoint is still quietly concentrating on dishes that showcase the freshest and most excellent of local ingredients. If it's been a while since your last visit, you'll be relieved to know that the smoked crab cakes are still on the menu, and the Silver Queen corn chowder still reigns as the house soup.
GOURMET HOT DOGS AND SAUSAGES WITH A MODERN TWIST!
Creative food in a formal dining room with slightly more informal service. Don't miss the woodsy mushroom salad served with udon noodles or the seared monkfish that floats in a carbonara-inspired sauce.
The Vagabond Players theater just celebrated its 85th season and is belovedly known for classic, dramatic, and comedic plays.
Just when you thought Fells Point was saturated with noisy, loud taverns, along comes a place that convinces you there's always room for one more. The food here is excellent, and the cushy dining space upstairs (open Thursday through Saturday nights) compensates for the noisy, awkward seating downstairs. Big-ticket items include well-cooked steaks and seafood pasta dishes. Light fare focuses on crafty quesadillas (which are half-price on Mondays), with plenty of vegetarian options. The historic 18th-century building that houses the Waterfront Hotel has been gutted back to its handsome brick skeleton. Check out the bacon-wrapped barbecue shrimp appetizer served on thick slabs of Monterey Jack toast and the excellent, friendly service.
"A seed-to-table restaurant that sources ingredients as locally and seasonally as possible, Waterfront Kitchen offers sweeping views of the Baltimore harbor from the western-most tip of Thames Street in Historic Fells Point."
